School Results 2021/22

The Avon Valley School is delighted that students in the class of 2021-22 gained an excellent set of examination results. With the hard work of students and teachers, and the support of parents and carers, 62% of students achieved a grade 4+ (standard pass) in both Maths and English. Analysis of the data shows that many faculty areas achieved strong results, representing the Arts, Modern Foreign Languages, Social Studies, Technology and ICT, and of course the core subjects. These results reflect the ability of the school to unlock the potential of all our students, allowing them to reach their personal goals and provide a springboard for the next stage in their life. They are also a reminder to the school community that achievement is at the core of our success at The Avon Valley School.

Notable exam successes include:

Liliya Herring, who achieved a fantastic set of GCSE results with 8 @ grade 9, 2@ Grade 8 and a grade A in the level 3 Free Standing Maths Qualification (FSMQ).

Samantha Wordley, Kausar Blackwell, Leila Aghdasi-Sisan, Ellie Boswell, Niamh Issitt and Julia Kaczmarek who achieved 8 or more GCSE’s at Grade 7 or above.

The school is incredibly proud of this year group and what it has achieved. The vast majority of students have moved on to continue with their education at college or sixth form, while others have gone into modern apprenticeships; all should be filled with self-confidence from their successes this summer.


Ofsted inspect schools to provide information to parents, to promote improvement and to hold schools to account for the public money they receive. School inspections are required by law. Ofsted provide an independent assessment of the quality and standards of education in schools, and check whether pupils are achieving as much as they can.

Inspectors will make graded judgements on the following areas using the four-point scale:

  • Effectiveness of leadership and management

  • Quality of teaching, learning and assessment

  • Personal development, behaviour and welfare

  • Outcomes for students

Upon completing their inspection Ofsted give schools an overall grade from 1 to 4: grade 1 (outstanding), grade 2 (good), grade 3 (requires improvement), grade 4 (inadequate). A written report is also produced. Reports relating to The Avon Valley School and Performing Arts College can be downloaded from this page.
